The 600 Massachusetts Ave journey began by exploring the separate, distinct building requirements that govern high-rise Massachusetts Avenue and historic I Street. CORE worked with Gould Property Company and Oxford Properties Group to develop a timeless design that unifies two vastly different sides of the building.
Environmental responsibility and building longevity are critically important to our clients, Gould Property Company and Oxford Properties Group. We helped them achieve their goal of designing a 400,000 square foot LEED Platinum office building.
From the onset of this project, CORE committed to thinking globally by designing a multicultural, environmentally responsible building. Together with our clients, CORE carefully shaped a desirable, sustainable work space that excites, intrigues, and inspires.
Creating 600 Massachusetts Ave involved troubleshooting a unique set of challenges. At CORE, we leveraged the diversity of our team’s skills and experience to realize our clients' vision.
600 Massachusetts Avenue NW is located in the Chinatown neighborhood of Washington, DC. The 11-story office building offers 400,000 SF of multi-tenant space and 20,000 SF of retail space as well as 300 units of underground parking. The design combines highly efficient floor planning, clean aesthetics, luxurious amenities, and green spaces that blur the line between indoors and outdoors. CORE served as Design Architect and Architect of Record for the base building, as well as the lobby and amenity spaces.
